Ever feel like you're always busy, but at the end of the day you sit back and wonder what you actually accomplished?
We all have days like that.
Maybe even weeks or months like that.
But it's not the way I want to live every day.
I know that's not the way you want to live either.
I asked Kristy's Cottage readers, What is your biggest challenge this year?
Check out the most common responses ----->
- Finding more time to take care of myself.
- Having enough time in my day.
- Budgeting and finances.
- Healthy meal prep.
And then these responses, Which area of your life that needs the most improvement?
- I get overwhelmed thinking about everything I need to do, and then I give up and do nothing. (one-third of the women who responded to my survey said this)
- Getting organized.
- Finding balance and cultivating daily rhythms.
- Time management and finances.
I relate to so many of these struggles and desires.
Don't we all long to live well?
Yet despite our deep desires, living an intentional and productive life doesn't just happen because we want it to.
We all know that life can happen, year after year, without us ever really reaching our desired goals or God-given potential.
I know, because I've been there.
I also know that you don't have to stay "stuck."
You can live well.
That's really why I began blogging back in 2007:
I wanted to share my journey with other women who want to live and love well too.
I don't have this all figured out.
The beauty of the journey is authentically sharing joys, challenges, questions and solutions with each other.
Want to join me?
Basically, I want to come along side you and encourage you, step by step, as you break away from living a crazy-busy-but not-really-intentional kind of life.
Most weeks, I write new content here on the blog.
On Fridays, I send my "Weekend Reads:" emails for my community of readers who have opted to receive subscriber-only content.
"Weekend Reads" go out most Friday mornings, and include a short, inspirational thought from me, new blog content, a short round-up of books or other blogs I've been reading, and the occasional item of interest.
Here's the thing: I only want to send you want you want to read.
I'm a lifestyle blogger who wears a lot of hats, so I write about everything from ministry life and homeschooling to self-care and practical solutions.
If you'll take a second to tick the boxes on the topics YOU WANT TO READ ABOUT, I'll only send you emails when there's new content on the blog that interest you.
Some weeks, I'll provide printable worksheets for you to download and use.
Most weeks, I won't. (Because I don't have time!)
But I do have a freebie for you today!
Please enjoy a free download- 7 Surprising Habits of Productive Women- when you opt in today.
This is a quick read I created to inspire and encourage you as an intentional woman.
There are eight pages to download and read, and two worksheets to help you think through your own habits and goals as a productive woman.
(Once you've hit the "subscribe button," check your inbox for your free download.)
I hope you love it, and of course I'd love to hear your feedback!
Thanks for subscribing... welcome to the community!
Here's to living & loving well-
